If you cannot afford to buy a ticket for flights to the U.S. you may apply for a repatriation loan from the U.S. government to purchase the ticket; please contact the embassy for details.
Need to leave for the airport during curfew hours? Send us your plans (names, vehicle/driver info, time, and address of departure) and the embassy can request permission from local authorities for you to drive to the airport during the curfew.
Hotels in Georgia will be permitted to reopen beginning June 15.
